••• Boy In The Anorak •••
Little Man Tate have released ‘Boy In The Anorak’. The tune which is much loved by fans and became a cult favourite track not appearing on any of their albums, instead the tune filled the gap between album releases back in 2007.
The band were no strangers to releasing big tracks before their albums and then the track not featuring on their L.P. Before their debut album many people discovered the band through ‘The Agent’ and ‘What, What You Got?’.
Little Man Tate have also launched a campaign allowing fans the opportunity to feature in the ‘Boy In The Anorak’ official video. The band made the following statement on social media:
Evening lovely people, we’re asking you to star in the video to celebrate the release of Boy In The Anorak tomorrow, across all major streaming services. All we need you to do is email us a 30 second clip (In landscape mode) of you miming along to the song at different parts. We want to see plenty of air guitar and drums as well as singing along plus anything else that will make us laugh. Wear your best LMT merch and make sure everyone gives their permission to be in the clip. Deadline is Monday 2nd Nov, looking forward to seeing what we get!
